Rock Climbing: Trad / Re: Book of Solemnity

Well that settles it. It's about honor. It's about integrity. For the sake of all that is pure and fair, this smudge that soils the cloak of our lady Cathedral must be expunged with due haste. Meet me at the witching hour with your torches and crowbars where the two paths split in the shadow of the Lady.

Didn't you get the memo? (I didn't either).  It is all fine if the routes were retrobolted BEFORE the choppers did them, that makes them "original.'

Don't think that applied for the bolts above the chimney on 3rd ( now usually 2nd) pitch of Thin Air-- Bolt anchor was there when I first did the climb in 1969   :o ( now I'll duck 8)

I think they were $20/pound direct from either Hops Direct or Fresh Hops. Not too bad. Surprised to see they are over $5/ounce from homebrew supply outfits. That would cost $25 just for the Citra for this one beer! (1 oz @ 20, 1 oz @ 10, 1 oz @ 5, 2 oz dryhop.)

I usually get several pounds of my favorite hops right after the harvest time then vacuum seal and freeze in 3 to 5 ounce portions and they keep for a couple of years.

Brewing this weekend for the first time in 2 years.

An all Citra pale ale (except Centennial for bittering because Citra tastes like kitty litter as a bittering hop) and then going to do a session Rye bittered with Mount Hood and finished with Hallertau.

Fer cryin' out loud let them be!  ;D ...

If you do chop them please do it cleanly and replace them up about 2 feet. Thanks!



I've only been kidding the entire time. But since they were not original to the FA anyway when it's time for them to be upgraded they probably should  be moved up a bit.


Ducking....

My excuse for not having been to Canada about the same length of time - all my partners stopped wanting to go! You've got a good reason for not having been Al!

Gotta hit up Crazy Mountain. A couple exits towards Vail is Vail Brewing Company. Was there right after it opened in April. Beer was ok and sure they'll tweak as they brew. Right next to a nice 420 store!

Thanks. So up around the cliffs to the north of the road just past Lost river campground? I am not super familiar with Kinsman Notch (Come on John, get your damn book out already  ;D ). How long a hike about do you thing to get up to them if I wanted to take a run in to look? Are they schist boulders?
